How stupid can you be? A 16-year-old boy from Pennsylvania is officially behind bars and has been charged with murder after authorities said that he killed a fellow teen and then decided to snapchat himself with the body.

Maxwell Marian Morton was charged with murder Friday night, in the death of Ryan Mangan, also 16.

Rebecca Murtland, Ryan’s mother, first was able to contact police at around 6 PM on Wednesday informing them that she’d found her son dead with a gunshot wound to the face.

On Thursday, a woman contacted police to inform them that her son had received a copy of a Snapchat photo that was sent from Morton. The image was a depiction of the wounded victim sitting in a chair (which is how he was found by his mother). Morton was in the picture, as if he was trying to take a selfie with the victim in the background.

The photo was named “MAXWELL” by the accused.

The woman also claimed that her son received messages from Maxwell, stating “Told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one.” Police officers have made it clear that the boy was found in the same position at the crime scene as he was in the picture.

After police delivered a search warrant to Morton’s home, they found a 9mm hand gun in the basement of the home, underneath the stairs.

Police stated that once they put Morton in handcuffs and read him his rights, infront of his parents, he then confessed to shooting Mangan, “leaving the victim dead in his bedroom.”

Wow! It almost seems like this kid wanted to get caught. Or was he just trying to show off in front of his friends.

Who takes a picture and puts it on snapchaat? This foolery has to stop.

All I can do is wish the best for both families and hope that Morton survives in prison… Because he is going away for a very very very long time.

    Whoever is writing the articles on this website should really take some writing courses, because the writing technique is poor and incorrect for literary standard. When one doesn’t know where to place commas or properly proofread, then they will never be taken seriously as a writer, blogger or journalist. This is only constructive criticism, and I hope you use it wisely.

    Like the group expressed, these do not have consciousness . At least 2-3 generations have been lost due to drugs(Crack) or imprisonment. There’s nobody home to teach respect for life. The criminal television has been the babysitter. There is this sweeping evil attacking our young and blinding the rich and Republicans. And creating this mental illness so to speak, don’t be fooled mental illness is wearing a disguise. This is real EVIL people,
